Devil's Backbone (Wild Beasts Series Book 5)Devil’s Backbone by T. Birmingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“It is when you stepped outside that safe world you’d created, into other’s perspectives, that the world became askew…”

The fifth book in the series, this paranormal fantasy can be read as a stand-alone. It is one of the shorter books in the series and gets right to the point.

It’s a complex tale and I think all of the main points of the story are explained in a quick and detailed manner so there is very little confusion as to who is who and what role they play. There are a few times that I found myself wondering if something came from one of the previous stories (which I’ve read).

The author’s writing is very descriptive and I am always able to play the movie in my head as I read along. There is a lot of symbolism in this story that at times I found reassuring and other times frightening. No matter my underlying feelings, overall there was always pleasure at what I was reading.

The way this book is formatted with sections and chapter headings was as intriguing as the story. The metaphors made what was about to happen an interesting twist to the read.

I’ve really enjoyed reading this entire series and based on the epilogue, the enjoyment is going to continue.
